In the United States, 44% of Americans are low-wage earners, often working multiple jobs. In fact, wages haven’t increased significantly since the ’70s, but … .

  1. Common sense would tell that Abortion is murder of an unborn child. Meaning, murder of the innocent.

    Blood of the innocent is in their hands.

    The fetuses have are living creatures who will then become human persons.
    Again, it only takes common sense, which is sadly not common today.

  2. There should be balance between power of union and employeers. In India we lost half a century to unions. Government has to pay High wages to Failing Public sector companies who hardly do any work. And private sector employees are paying huge taxes to pay the wages of public sector employee.
    Yesterday a filmmaker committed suicide in Maharashtra because film union leader were pressuring him to pay in lakhs. And normally union leaders are dreaded criminals who just want to earn their share of cut from employees.
    And then there are IT companies in India where unions don't apply where employees are indirectly forced to work for long hours and even weekends without any compensation.

    All we need is a balance.

  3. 60 years ego people work for a corporation they could support their families and wife's stay home to work both and they can't survive must be something wrong with the system is the rotten politicians period

  4. Unions are a sham to take your money every month.
    Unions hold companies hostage to get their way.
    Unionizing everything just gives people a reason to slack off and still get paid for it.
    With unions there is no incentive to improve anything because you still get paid either way.

  5. An interesting video and I learned alot because I live in a right to work state in the US. I only had 2 brief stints with a set salary or hourly wage and disliked them both, but that's because one was in retail and the other was in accounting. I quit both after demanding a raise due to have high productivity but getting paid the same as the person just going through the motions, and that request falling short of what I thought my production value was. So I happily work a job with commission incentives, but I have experienced the difficulty of negotiating for higher wages, so I see the need for unions….so long as they dont push any politics and stick to wages and labor laws.

  6. if you think that argentina unions are a good example to follow you are very wrong. To be fair you have to see both faces of the coin, most of them are mafias that extort the employer and force their ways over the employes.

  7. America lacks solidarity. When Amazon workers were pushing to unionize. Americans did not stop buying. As a member of the Teamsters union it saddens me to see unions get weaker and disbanded. Or not even provided the opportunity to exist. Packing and delivering residential deliveries is a difficult profession. I cannot even imagine how hard it'd be to do it without union benefits and wages. It is true when people say that the best solution to poverty are strong unions.

  8. I'm so glad I'm part of the "metal union(IG Metall=Industriegewerkschaft Metall)" over here in Germany. They even negotiated a bonus payment this year because most people had significantly higher costs because of covid. I even got my full salary when we were in full Lockdown for a month. You gotta be crazy if your not in 1 they help the average Joe so much and its a counterweight to the employer otherwise we would earn poverty wages like many of the US workers. Almost every one is part of a union here(in the bigger factories).

  9. The bad news is that the argentine labor union structures haven't changed in 40 years and haven't achived anything for worker since 2001, they became just a pressure groups for the Kirchners against opposition goverments and political parties

    This means Argentina has one of the biggest Labour Unions structures in the world but it also has one of the most expensive and corrupt ones, aproximately 5% of Salaries are destine to labour unions by law while also the health programs of workers are managed by this labour unions who manipulate workers to strike or else they are fired

    Big doesn't mean functional

  10. Imagine taking France with nearly 10% structural unemployment rate and Argentina — which is meme of how not to do things among most of economists — as case studies for the US, while ignoring the Netherlands where only 16% of the workforce are unionised, as well as Denmark with their famous “flexicurity” labour market policies. Wow. Really unbiased and comprehensive approach indeed.

  11. In Sweden there's is now a big black market for imigrant worker that have wages much lower than the minimum wages than in US. But they don't need to pay for health care if they get sick and have free education for their kids.

  12. It's amazing how in the 50s and 60s people could afford homes by working 40 hours at the grocery stores and other blue collar jobs. The problems are many but one large chunk is uncontrolled capitalism. A system of social darwinism has made the country top heavy in terms of income and inequality.

  13. Did you really using argentina as an example? Are you INSANE. Did you really think they are good example? Argentina is the only developed country to decline to developing country status. And one of the reason is because their union is way way too strong. And all of that is because of peron

  14. America is the land of opportunity…..so much opportunity for capitalism…..for investment……for arbitrage….for making a buck….

    Capitalism……the art of turning a dollar into two or more dollars….I mean the definition of capitalism literally is the ownage of the means of production or goods in order to grow ur capital so u can own more means of production or goods…..

    Capital is the most powerful tool…..not labour…….capital is leverage…..the more capital u have the more capital u make the faster and richer u get……until one day u are up there in the stratosphere with Jeff bezos and bill gates where u forgot what shyt even smells like….

    Control capitalism or capitalism controls u.

    If u are one of those losers who just want to work some dead end job all ur life and expect…….

  15. You are forgetting to mention the negative effect that corrupt union leader have for the economy. In the case of Argentina the union CGT is the most corrupt in the country and have the entire country under it's control and aids unions like Sindicato de Camioneros (Truck driver Union) to have the economy un siege. They don't allow the train to be developed again since that would affect their economic status. This has a very negative effect on the price of food being of the causes of the major inflation we have right know. I believe the Labour Laws in Argentina are pretty good. We can fight back if an employer fires us, we have 15 days of paid vacations per year when we start the job and is increased with how long the employee works for a company, we have paid maternity/paternity leave, we have paid leave if we have to study in University (20 days per year), we also have healthcare benefits. However, there are many thing to improve like the salaries that are paid to workers. But it's not all dandy.

  16. I think it only works when you are an Trade Union Member in a Capitalist country. If it was in a Socialist country then first the industry would tank and then the jobs would go off.

    I have seen that literally in the place where I live where communism has been there for almost 60 years.

  17. The first thing that sticks out to me is wage growth vs productivity. Productivity rises because of increases in technology and automation, which create demand low-skilled jobs and in turn, keeping wages low. Doesn’t that make sense.
